Marty Raymond, the only coach in NHL history to have the worst power play and the worst PK within a calendar year

How does a team and staff deal with this mid season. My God. It's on another level.

Fired Raymond? Seems like a no brainer.

Someone once pointed out to me that in politics a gaffe really only sticks when it confirms a flaw that everyone thought existed but couldn't really prove. I think that sums up the uber video perfectly. Personally I hope the coaching staff treats this as a collective wake up call it needs rather benches the players over this.

There's only so much scumbaggery to go around. The driver, low life move. The players ? What would piss me off if I was on the staff, or the GM is your supposed established player or leader, talking shit like that in front of rookies. I'm sure half the Leafs ridicule Babcock and do impressions behind his back. And the other half laughs, but that's making fun of the guy, not his abilities. Seems like a nice way of not looking in the mirror. If a hitter goes 0 for 34, he nees to look in the mirror, not at the hitting coach. Maybe Raymond is a lousy coach, I have no idea, but these guys have all palyed on the pk before.

In lighter news, attendance is so low OC Transpo is reducing bus service to the CTC.

Imagine if it really was Martin Raymond who was harassing the Karlssons.

Was thinking of that today too. I never could remember his name as he has that forgettable look. Now I’ll never be able to forget his name.

Threatening to sue the Ottawa Citizen is a brilliant move to get the Uber story out of the news. I wonder if the new COO is this bad or if this was a Melnyk decision.

The Senators won't let this story get out the news.



Bruce Garrioch was apparently let on the flight. So either the Senators are rewarding Bruce for his service as the franchise's mouthpiece or Melnyk is unaware that the Sun and Citizen combined their sports reporting.

:trump:

Also on the Senators’ growing no-fly list is TSN reporter Brent Wallace who, prior to the team’s Parliament Hill game last December, had the audacity to ask owner Eugene Melnyk about a report that suggested he had been withholding bonus money from his employees.

Melnyk denied the allegation.

Once the cameras were turned off, bystanders saw him turn to Wallace and say, “I’m going to bury you.”

Since then, Wallace’s seat on the charter has also been revoked

Seems pretty crazy but from what it sounds like, ottawa is the only team that lets writers travel with team? No idea how to find out if that's true.


One thing is for sure we're at the end of the local sports journalists run. I can't believe they have what, 3 full time English reporters for a newspaper. That number will be one within three years.

Kind of sad but things have changed. The Athletic shows their 100 million dollar company and those numbers add up to them not making 10 cents. I dont think the future is a pay wall site, probably just garrioch surviving and spinning his most basic news clippings. He's mailed it in and I can tell right away if its his article without reading the writers name.

I miss Roy Macgregor and recently Wayne Scanlan. Ottawa was blessed with both and a young Ken Warren at the citizen. It's been a great fall. Warren is probably the best remaining. Brennan I do like when he's writing with spite but too many times he just plays the opposite side card and tries to get people going. I thought he was good going against melnyk recently but he seems to have cooled. Probably for good reason as eugene seems to pull at the straws with the media.

No soup for you. Come back, one year.

Genuinely interested in seeing Batherson tonight. He looks to quietly be an exceptional prospect. His highlights in the AHL have been convincing for a 20 year old.

Seems like a smart player and person. He could be a real steal going forward.

Formenton has garnered a lot of talk and has played a lot more in the NHL in two seasons now, but I've always thought Batherson will be the one to watch.
